LaMonte Armstrong

LaMonte Armstrong was wrongfully convicted of murdering his college professor in 1998. Armstrong was sentenced to life in prison and served 17 years. A judge overturned his conviction thanks in part to the help of Duke Law School students. The real killer was implicated by a bloody handprint left at the crime scene.

Authorities reportedly withheld evidence, and lied to keep Armstrong locked up.
